Description

The space

We are offering a beautiful140sqm (about 1500sq ft) apartment located minutes from Antigua, in a beautiful gated complex called Cortijo de las Flores.

This is a vacation apartment, and is catered to satisfy a traveler's needs, while offering a relaxing environment in a quiet and beautiful neighborhood. This studio apartment is ideal for 4-6 people, but will comfortably host up to 8 people.

Cortijo de las Flores is a luxurious housing complex located about 5 minutes from Antigua, right next to Ciudad Vieja (one of Antigua's neighboring towns).
The studio apartment is owned and maintained by my family, and we take pride in trying to offer our visitors the best experience possible. The studio apartment offers:

- 2 bedrooms:
* 1 bedroom in the lower level, with a king-size bed and en-suite bathroom.
* 1 bedroom in the upper level, with two queen-size beds.
- 2 full bathrooms, one in the lower level and one in the upper level
- 1 small kitchenette on the lower level, stocked with utensils and appliances.
- Dining area on the lower level, with a table that sits four
- Living area on the lower level, with a sofa bed, big enough for two more people.
- A lounge area on the upper level, with a seating area, a fireplace and a balcony, fully stocked with gorgeous view of the volcanoes surrounding Antigua.
- Small terrace with gas grill and seating area.
- 1 small garden at the entrance, with a seating area.

The studio has a broadband wireless router, if you need wifi for your devices. There are also two TVs, one on each room, with cable service.

Feel free to send me a message if you want any more info on this place. We also may offer the two levels separately for small parties (t need that much space.

Guest access

The apartment is located within a gated complex, with sufficient parking for up to three cars. It also has lots of green areas and gardens, if you fancy an early stroll.

Interaction with guests

I usually meet personally with guests to hand them over keys and like to email suggestions about things to do, etc. In rare ocassions, a family member may meet up with you. I'm also always a phone/text/email away, and I do check in via email or text every couple of days, just to make sure your experience is going as smooth as possible.

The neighborhood

Inside the complex, you have access to loads of green areas and quiet cobblestone streets to walk around, it's peaceful and relaxing. Outside the complex, Ciudad Vieja is just steps away. Go and discover the second capital city of Guatemala.

Getting around

The studio is 4.8km from Antigua's Central Park, a 5-minute bus/taxi/tuk tuk ride, or a 25-minute bike trip from Antigua Guatemala. It is also walking distance to Ciudad Vieja, another colonial gem, as well as walking distance to a laundromat, gym, convenience store, and a small shopping plaza.

Maria's place is amazing. The bedrooms are as described. The beds are very comfortable. The shade in the room downstairs blocked out all of the light at night. We stayed here for golf in la reunion and the transportation was easy to her house. Not far away from Antigua either. Great host who answered every question I had and even helped us translate to get a pizza order when we arrived late.

100% recommended . We felt like home. Such a beautiful house. María and her parents were always available. Once you have been in this extraordinary house, you don't want to leave it any more. We lived a wonderful experience!

One of a kind place to stay and enjoy a great time close to Antigua while away from the crowd. Maria's was very attentive to my request and kept me in the loop daily. I would highly recommend her place to enjoy breath taking views of the volcanoes. Gracias María.

Lovely split level studio in very safe and quite gated community conveniently located out side of Antigua. Plenty of transportation options - we used the local bus for going to and from Antigua as well as taxis service to the airport. We did a little bit of cooking and the kitchen was fully equipped. We enjoyed a fantastic view of the volcano at night and Maria was very communicative and easy to deal with. Both levels have full bathrooms and their is plenty of hot water. We will definately come back here and would recommend it- comfortably sleeps 4 people but there is space for 6 max. We are frequent travelers, bilingual and brought our son on this trip- everything went smoothly.

Hosts, father and daughter came to greet us and offered tips to other conveniences in the unit and the neighborhood and all proved to be excellent guidance. Unit is cozy and sorroundings make you feel safe.

It has got to be one of our most special stays on Airbnb so far! Maria has been very warm and friendly and stays connected prior and during our stay. Lovely! Blown away with the house - cosy and has ample space for 4 adults! We have the privilege to watch the volcano doing it's "thang" at night from the balcony. Such a spectacular event! Thank you Maria!

This was our second stay at Maria's beautiful home, and like the last time, it was beautiful, serene, and equipped with everything we needed to feel at home away from home. Feeling a bit more comfortable on this, our second trip to Ciudad Vieja, we primarily made our way around on the chicken buses (which we were able to easily catch from right outside the complex). Getting to/from Anitgua was a breeze (about 5-10 min on the bus), and we found that we actually preferred staying here to being in the center of the town. We love this house and will consider it our first choice whenever we return.

31yr-old project manager with plenty of wanderlust. Web junkie, social media enthusiast, concert-goer, traveler. I love to travel whenever and wherever I can!

Born in Guatemala and currently living in Guatemala City. I love meeting travelers from all places (as I am pretty often a traveler myself). Currently offering space in our Antigua property, and a room at my apartment in Guatemala City.

About me being a AirBnB user...
Not picky when it comes to a place to stay. I just need a decent WC and WIFI, and we're good to go. I love experiencing places as a local, getting to know the neighborhood and straying off the touristy path.
